Psychedelic, disco-punk interlopers Fake Turins have re-emerged with a special broadcast for the collective. The North London ten-piece have just released their new single, Legs, which incorporates elements of jazz, funk and Hindustani influences to create a unique musical aesthetic.
Fronted by Dominic Rose, his half-sung style is reminiscent of Lou Reed and David Byrne. Rose comes across as more of a digital preacher passing on information to his flock, with the lyrics of Legs warning of the importance of balancing both the body and mind, as opposed to the need to provide physical stimulation and movement to distract ourselves from mental health issues.
The percussion patterns provide different textures and dynamics to Legs, while the bass anchors the song; rhythmically and harmonically delivering a repetitive funk motif that is the perfect backdrop for the melodies that build strategically around its groove.
The addition of a warm-toned, jazz style clarinet, and the almost twangy sitar-like tones, adds to the hypnotic tempo of Legs. Fake Turins have created an incredible track that is a melting pot of infectious, innovative sounds with a unique and distinguishing edge. Check it out now!
